How Not To Get Scammed When Applying For Work Abroad

We hear more and more stories about people being scammed by overseas job hiring agencies. The applicants' wish to be able to work abroad makes them not see the dangers in working abroad without the proper papers. Many of them risk their lives just to get the job. If you feel that the agency you are applying for has some issues or you may have many questions unanswered, it is best to check first the current status of the agency with POEA. They have a complete list of agencies with good standing and with those suspended and with licensed revoked. Working in other countries under a tourist visa will put yourself in a risky sitruation. Yes, we really need to earn more money to help our family but it is always wise to do your homework before you make your life in danger.
